“Tibia is a unique success story”, says Managing Director and CipSoft co-founder Ulrich Schlott. Stephan Vogler, Managing Director and co-founder, adds: “I’m happy and grateful that our student project has grown into such an MMO hit, supported by a very dedicated team and, most of all, by our wonderful players. Even after 20 years we’re not running out of ideas for Tibia — I’m sure the game will keep attracting players for years to come.”

Tibia has still grown in player numbers over the last years and is currently played by more than 100,000 gamers every day (DAU).
